Dominic Lawson asks former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey why he changed his mind from opposition to any euthanasia to support for assisted dying to be made legal in the UK.

A lifelong opponent of euthanasia, George Carey recently changed his mind on an issue which the Church of England has always opposed - assisted dying for those who can decide for themselves that their suffering as a result of very serious medical problems is too much to bear. He explains how he decided to change his views on such a significant issue for the Church.

In "Why I Changed My Mind", Dominic Lawson interviews people who have changed their mind on controversial matters.

Producer: Jonathan Brunert.
